    13. 22. Reader’s response <ul><li>I vote Lorella Zanardo because she is doing a fantastic job to educate Italian adolescents to watch tv in a discerning way, which is something missing completely in Italian schools. She is now an &quot;Internet star&quot; and travels the world with her documentary, Il corpo delle donne, about the mis-representation and stereotypes of women's bodies on the Italian tv. 
If you haven't done it yet please watch it. In a country dominated by Berlusconi's media and vision Lorella, a woman like us but with a big vision, is making a difference. Her educational project is almost totally self financed. </li></ul>

Querría probarlo todo&quot;. Las aficiones o la vocación de uno también chocan a menudo con el muro de las prohibiciones. </li></ul>
    16. 31. <ul><li>Naser. Futbolista, 24 años </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Mi vida es el fútbol y mi sueño sería jugar en la liga profesional en Europa&quot;. El 70% de la población iraní tiene menos de 30 años. </li></ul>
